Climate Actions

Представители российского энергетического бизнеса выступают против сокращения государственной поддержки возобновляемых источников энергии (ВИЭ). Письмо о негативном влиянии на экономику решения по поводу уменьшения объема отбора генерации ВИЭ отправили вице-премьеру Аркадию Дворковичу представители созданной в результате реформ РАО «ЕЭС Россия» энергетической компании «Энел».

“EnergyStrategyforRussiatill 2035” shouldfacilitateimport-independentand well-balanced energy model: Prime Minister Medvedev gave instructions regarding amendment to the document.  NGO representatives believe that low-carbon development with a priority to energy efficiency and renewable energy should become the major landmark for the new Energy Strategy. 

At the UN COP22 Climate Conference in Marrakech, where countries, companies, and coalitions declared the unconditional priority of the green energy, Russia indicated its special way: the medium-term priorities are focused on gas extraction development, enhancement of energy efficiency in the coal and material-intensive industries and also on nuclear power production.

Two years of crashing prices for oil, natural gas, and coal triggered dramatic downsizing in those industries, while renewables have been thriving. Clean energy investments broke new records in 2015 and is now seeing twice as much global funding as fossil fuels.
